This is the same kernel as liquorix/lqx, and there's a precompiled linux-zen in community also. Damentz and some others manage it and do a great job choosing features and patches to enhance desktop responsiveness.

I compiled linux-zen with some custom configuration and ran some benchmarks to check the difference in performance. I'm very happy with the results. The only three tests that this kernel was considerably slower were the Apache test (which I don't care, this is a desktop kernel anyway), the context switching stress-ng test and schbench 8 threads (my CPU have 2 cores and 4 threads, I've noticed lack of responsiveness when more than 4 processes are consuming CPU).

Note that these benchmarks are not scientific. I'll try to recompile linux-zen with localyesconfig and upload more results.

Seems like the first time on every new kernel point release lately it does not build with the config that is in the build dir, but some wierd one that does not even boot properly (with lots of auditing in dmesg). When I check the src/build dir the .config file there is correct, and a makepkg -f build the correct kernel.

Whats happening now?

msg2 "Installing files necessary for 3rd party modules such as NVIDIA drivers or OSSv4..."

mkdir -p "${pkgdir}/usr/src/linux-$_kernver/"{arch/x86,include,tools/objtool}

install -D -m755 "${srcdir}/build/tools/objtool/objtool" "${pkgdir}/usr/src/linux-$_kernver/tools/objtool/objtool"

edit fixes it btw

I looked into it a bit, and it's because tools/objtool/objtool is not copied with the header files.

From 4.15.10 or so there is something wrong with the header files. I can not build any modules. Get *** No rule to make target etc..

Does not seem to build properly from 4.14.9. Think it has something to do with the new setting CONFIG_UNWINDER_ORC. I get lots of "warning: objtool: etc..." Hope you can look into it:)
